Groningen vs Willem II
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 13.30 UK
Venue: Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium, Groningen.
Groningen welcomes Willem II this Sunday at Hitachi Capital Mobility, and they are favorites to earn all three points at 1.85 rate.
Visitors are also going through the crisis, underperforming in the first two months. Team from Tilburg has finally ended winless streak of seven games in a row last weekend versus VVV.
Groningen are still the only team in Netherlands which managed to beat the reigning champions Ajax in the new campaign.
Overall their season is not doing that well, sitting in 8th place after nine rounds with 14 points.
They are unable to take advantage of games against lower tier teams like they did in the previous years, so battle for Europa League spots is going to be rough.
Groningen vs Willem II Head-to-head

The average number of goals scored in abovementioned matches is 2.53 per duel.
Groningen vs Willem II Prediction
The most recognizable name in the home roster Arjen Robben is still injured, so he won’t be able to make an appearance on Sunday. Other than that, all other standard members of the roster are in good shape. After a slow start to the new campaign, Groningen recovered in the last 40 days. They have collected eight points from the last five outings, losing only to Feyenoord on the road while beating VVV and Fortuna Sittard.
Green & White Army do have some form of consistency when it comes to duels at this stadium, which can’t be said for Willem’s away days. Squad form Tilburg was defeated in five out of the last seven away days, while winning zero matches. We are expecting home victory and low number of goals.
Groningen vs Willem II Bet Tips
